Is it morally wrong to cause offence?

Dear Launie Pub Philosophers:

It can be legally wrong (in some jurisdictions) to cause offence. But is it morally wrong to cause offence?

What (if anything) would be the justification for claiming that it is morally wrong to cause offence?

The Launie Pub Philosophers will meet at the Gunners Arms Tavern, 23 Lawrence St, Launceston on Tuesday May 4, from around 6pm to around 7:30pm, to discuss this interesting question.
